Servings: 40 truffles
- 40 Oreo cookies crushed
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 24 oz white chocolate
- 1 candy cane
Place candy cane into large ziplock bag. Seal the bag and pulverize the candy cane with a mallet.*
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Cut licorice into forty 1-inch pieces. Set aside.
Crush the cookies into crumbs in either a food processor/blender or a large ziplock bag.
In a medium bowl, combine oreo crumbs with cream cheese into a paste.
Scoop out 1-inch balls, roll in your palms and place on cookie sheet. Freeze 30-60 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the chocolate in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until smooth.
Using two forks, gently immerse the ball in white chocolate and roll to coat to coat, and then place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle pulverized candy cane on top.
Repeat the previous steps for the remaining oreo balls. Place baking sheet in the fridge to chill for at least 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
*If you don't have a kitchen mallet or hammer, you can try using the bottom of a small saucepan instead.
Keep truffles chilled until serving.
